The mortality rates of the male population aged 35-40 in Russia are twice as high as among women, said the head of the Russian Ministry of Health, Mikhail Murashko.

Today’s young people are often not committed to a healthy lifestyle. Most men in Russia smoke, abuse alcohol and do not take time to exercise. These external factors cause increased mortality, Murashko explained.

“By the age of 35-40, the mortality rates for men and women are two times different,” the minister said at the All-Russian Forum of Medical Volunteers.

In May 2022, the death rate in Russia decreased by 9.4%, follows from Rosstat data. Since the beginning of this year, mortality has decreased by 3.9%. In just five months of 2022, more than 878 thousand people died in Russia.
